* ObviouslyEvil: Lex's circle of greedy corporate co-conspirators, especially the one that [[EvilIsNotWellLit complains about daylight]] with no apparent medical reason.

* HurlItIntoTheSun: Superman rounds up all the nuclear weapons on Earth and throws them into the sun. Unfortunately, SelfDemonstrating/LexLuthor attaches a genetic matrix created from Superman's hair to the final nuclear missile. And when Superman throws it into the sun, the result is the creation of Nuclear Man, who Superman then has to fight.

* WhatTheHellHero: Superman invites Lois on a flight, similar to the scene in the first film. In that film, Lois accidently slipped from his grasp, forcing him to rescue her. Here, he decides to ''deliberately drop her'' and then rescue her, for reasons which don't really make sense.

''Superman IV'' was plagued by a severely reduced budget compared to previous films in the franchise (courtesy of Creator/TheCannonGroup, which bought the franchise from the Salkinds), and it shows in copious amounts of SpecialEffectsFailure throughout. The returns of Gene Hackman and Margot Kidder to the cast did nothing to save this movie. It's also notable as the shortest film in the series at barely an hour-and-a-half. Its running time was cut by the producers for its theatrical release, and while its DVD cut doesn't make it much ''better'' by most accounts, it's at least marginally more ''coherent.'' One extended action sequence cut from the theatrical release features the "prototype" of Nuclear Man, who closely resembles Creator/DCComics' Bizarro character.

* ArtisticLicensePhysics: ''Superman IV'' would make a physicist hang himself; said physicist would never survive seeing a human woman breathing ''perfectly fine '''in space'''''. (Perhaps she was [[BatmanCanBreatheInSpace Batman]] in disguise?)

* CryingLittleKid: A deleted scene has Nuclear Man create a tornado, only for a girl to get caught up in it, leaving Superman to rescue her. It's much, much, ''much'' more {{Narm}}y than it sounds. (The crying girl in question was apparently played by Christopher Reeve's daughter-- and by a [[SpecialEffectsFailure wholly unconvincing dummy]].)

** Or Superman was just trying to pretending to know to dissude the rampagining Nuclear Man who is a ranting about some woman. Superman does not know who he is talking about, and just says something like "Whoever you're looking for, she isn't here. Please stop rampaging over this."
